if I had any complaints it was the animal extermination from the 4th episode became somewhat spurious without any pay off. I imagine it was supposed to show how the Russian public were used and spat out the other side, or perhaps the similarities between what happened and wartime conflicts, but we didn’t get to see much of the effect of what happened outside a single shot of a dead eyed soldier. Maybe that’s all that was needed perhaps.


This is explicitly covered in the podcast for this episode.

There was also some stuff they filmed but left out of the final programme because it was too horrible.

Quote:
Oh and the soundtrack was suuu-perb. It was just different sounding; haunting and creepy, I don’t know what instruments were used but it felt sort of Bladerunner-esq to me, perhaps? Not the future synth, just, the tone and feel of it? You know what I mean?


The music is covered in some detail in one of the podcasts.

VERY SUBTLE HINT HINT - Listen to the podcasts, they're fantastic companion pieces to the programme.

I did the first two episodes of this last night, fantastic stuff, very powerful.

I knew the story already in many regards already, but seeing it dramatised so well gives it extra resonance.

Also contains archive footage of Trump from 1989 to remind us once again what a cunt he is.

It's on Netflix.

New Jessica Jones is out, I'm 4 episodes in and it's better than season 2 so far.

Self-circumcision with a rusty BIC razor would be better than Season 2, so that's not saying much.

I don’t see the point now they’re winding them all down.

This is the last one I think, that's all of them done after this season.

You won't watch something unless it goes on forever?

Yes that’s exactly what I’m saying. Obviously.

Jessica Jones was standard Netflix marvel. Started strong, got boring and drawn out in the middle, ended strong.

Pretty much, there is no setup for another series at least.

Your logic would suggest that anyone who hadn't seen Firefly yet shouldn't watch Firefly, so is obviously as broken as it's possible to be.

Meh, I haven’t watched it in ages. I bet it hasn’t aged well.

Sadly Adam Baldwin’s fuckwittery over the last five years has sort of put me off ever going back to it.

Hannibal is on Netflix. I’ve started to watch it from the start and just the first episode is outstanding.
